    My family and I moved up to Indiana a couple years ago and we love coming to this zoo! It has several interactive things and as well as up close and personal experience. My daughter loves the carousal, I like the gator ride and her father loves the sky lift. We always ride the train and it's nice that you can see some animals from there as well.

    The zoo is easy to get around and every time we have visited, we have been able to see just about every animal. There is a petting zoo/feeding section here too. It doesn't ever seem too crowed no matter when/what time of the day we are there.

    We are from Columbus, Ohio, but came to The Embassy to see Joe Bonamassa. It was a great show, to say the least!

    The theater is grand and gorgeous! Lots of ornate carvings.

    We sit 3 rows back up in the balcony at center stage, and the seats were just right and the view was great!

    If someone we would like to see there in concert, we would definitely come back.

    I've been to Parkview more times than I can count, and each time great fun. The seats are good, the crowds enthusiastic, the "shows" in between visits are fun - food is expensive but the whole place is great.

    Libraries have always been favorite places for me since childhood but besides books and CD's and music and art - this library also has an auditorium with a wide range of events, the Lincoln section. one of the best genealogical services in the whole USA, free concerts on Friday at noon - activities for kids, for hobbyists - and if you're a member - and you should be, it's free - free parking. Great staff - clean and organized - Bravo

    Very nice place. Nothing really special except for the butterfly's. Worth going to see.
    Need more for TA so I'd like to say that I loved my day in Ft. Wayne. People are Indiana friendly. Old and new buildings. Beautiful old "downtown area. Coffee shops to sit and relax everywhere. Wall art everywhere. Great restaurants.

    I really loved the staff and the content of the museum, it was just a huge bummer that half of the museum was closed switching out exhibits. Paying full price for half the content was disappointing but it’s definitely worth going back if you know everything is open!

    I grew up wandering to Lakeside Park almost every day to run on the brick and asphalt paths and to watch the sun on the sundial and to drink out of the old fountains and to play on the playgrounds. it is a historic and beautiful park in north central downtown.

    We walked through the building because it was so hot that day. The thing I loved about the convention hall is that it makes Ft. Wayne a convention City. The big time groups go to Indy or Chicago, the little groups come to Ft. Wayne. I liked Ft. Wayne very much. Great downtown area. Very friendly people. Nice places to stay and plenty of good restaurants

    Visited over the weekend with our preschool age son. He definitely would have appreciated more of the museum if he was older, but he loved many of the exhibits, water tables, and indoor playground area. Some exhibits were out of order and we were bummed that staffing did not allow for the big slide to be open.

    This is a "rebuilt" fort. Where we were there we were the only guest. There was a young women who gave us the complete history. Wayne was a bad man who showed up, killed about 150 people ( French and Indians) and immediately left. And they named the City after him. Worth an hour.

    This is an upscale dining and concert venue. Not black tie upscale, just…nice. Parking lot is easily accessible. Nicest and most intimate concert experience we have ever attended. The staff are so friendly. Drinks were phenomenal. The sound inside the concert venue is unmatched. Hands down the best sounding concert we have ever been too. Easy to navigate throughout the building and everything is updated to perfection. 10/10
